Bursary scheme

Our bursary scheme aims to benefit schools and rewards students with good academic performance and to improve the general level of formal education in the community. In the financial year 2011, our bursary scheme covered 51 primary and seven secondary schools within the areas of our operations in Sarawak. We also reward RM9,500 (US$3,000) to RM15,000 (US$5,000) annually to students in our partnership universities who have excelled academically. In Guyana we reward cash incentives of GYD$40,000 (USD$190) to GYD$50,000 (USD$240) to high achievers of the Grade 6 National Examination who are children of Barama employees.
